Vigevano is an ancient town in the province of Pavia, Lombardy, northern Italy, which possesses many artistic treasures and runs a huge industrial business. It is at the center of a district called Lomellina[?].

It hosts a Duomo, a tower by Bramante, a Castello Sforzesco (a stronghold[?] built by the Sforza family) and the world-famous shoe-museum, dedicated to the town's major activity, which is in fact the industrial production of fashion shoes.

The town is the birthplace of Gian Carlo Rota.
